Description

The history of pi, says the author, though a small part of the history of mathematics, is nevertheless a mirror of the history of man. Petr Beckmann holds up this mirror, giving the background of the times when pi made progress-and also when it did not, because science was being stifled by militarism or religious fanaticism.
